The Power of the Mind/Body Connection to Conception
Author: Niravi B. Payne

Abstract:

A new vision in health care is emerging, challenging the age old separation of mind and body which I believe undergirds the reproductive crisis of today. There is growing evidence that our emotional and physical health and well-being is affected by the complex interplay of psychosocial, psychological and physiological factors, affecting conception.


On Being Abused

Abstract:

As I considered writing this article I thought, I guess I'll have to use a false name. That determined it.

From this realisation the article has been born and written without a pseudonym—I have had the courage to own it.

Even though I was convinced that by stating my status of mental health practitioner I would be allowed to say goodbye for the last time, my pompous declaration appeared to have no effect on the hospital staff and all I could do was to watch what was happening like a convict whose sentence is to watch his worst nightmare over and over and over again without even being able to close his eyes…


Being Exceptionally Helped

Abstract:

I grew up in the emotional gutter. My social-phobic, sexually-abused, suicidal mother gained little benefit from twenty years of expensive psychiatric treatment. And at 52, although I had a CV which many would envy (registration as a psychologist, international authorship, a career in computers in its heady pioneering days, as well as postgraduate degrees in both physics and psychology), I didn't feel that I had faired much better.
